NO RATINGS
I think as we're starting to see Western(US/Europe) interest in Korea, Korean style is blooming...like a plant in the sunlight. 

LG and Samsung dominate the tv market.  They offer the next big thing consistently year after year at CES, even if we don't realise we want it.  Just like Apple used to do.  The initial ipod launch is the best example of that.  It wasn't the first mpg player, just the most desirable.  And, consequently, the most essential.

K-pop is wildly popular.  Korean athletes are known worldwide.  In CA, Korean immigrants have revitalized areas in cities such as Los Angeles and Oakland.

Beacuse of the strong history between Korea and Japan, there are some similarities.   Westerners see the style as familiar yet new.  That's very attractive.

NO RATINGS
While I'm 100% committed to Apple gear (and right now see no need to change that), I have to admit some of the Samsung phones I've seen around town look very tantalizing. I'd love to know more about what, if any, are stand-out components and if this tear down reveals anything interesting about Samsung's design choices compared to Apple or any of its other competitors. Any one out there have any insights?
